said karzai should focus on what nato troops have done in sacrifice for helping his country. >> it would be helpful if the president would express his thanks for the sacrifices that were made by those who fought and died for afghanistan rather than critize . >> panetta offering up his thoughts in a trip to peru. he will head to brussels for the talks on the road ahead in afghanistan and continuing troop withdrawals. >>> and attackings by members of the afghan forces against the nato troops is raising concerns it has strained relations and serious lease undermined nato trust in afghan partners. oliver north is joiningugs near kabul, afghanian where he is embedded with special opposition forces. the insider attacks. >> these are young americans. >>> and killed more than 50 ally troops including 30 americans. what impact is that having on the front line there? >> uma, they continue to fight. and what we have seen in the ground and we have that for you here is a different story than what we are getting back from the main stream media. today we tramped to a remote outpostwhere th
and people get killed on the turkish side then the turkish government will put pressure on nato and the united states to act. and that's where the administration and nato will find themselves in a difficult position it's also true the turks are aiding and abetting an army that is fighting the syrian government. so it's getting murky in some ways. >> warner: so what happens if there were, hirsch hammel hem, several more accidents like what has happened in the last few days? what could it lead to? >> i think erdogan, the turkish prime minister, will be forced to intervene militarily. we don't know to what extent or on what level. already the turks launched a jet plane in june. two pilots were killed. this is the first time we had five civilians being killed. if this occurs, erdogan will be facing a tremendous challenge from within and he would lose whatever credibility he has already many people are criticizing the turks because in the last seven months they've been huffing and puffing saying we won't allow this to happen in syria, we will impose a no-fly zone or have our own secu
. nato is looking at whether syria's attack is an act of war. >> reporter: for a second straight day, the turkish military has shelled positions inside syria and according to at least one human rights organization has killed syrian soldiers as a result of that shelling. it comes on a day after a syrian mortar landed in a turkish border town that killed five people, including a mother and her three children. meanwhile, nato, the alliance that the united states and other european countries are a part of, have been holding emergency sessions. they're debating whether or not the attack on turkey justifies a response from the entire nato alliance. >> citizens have been killed inside turkey. by forces from another country. so we express our strong solidarity with turkey. but we don't want to see a continuing escalation of this incident. >> reporter: there is an article in the charter of that organization that says an attack on one country constitutes an attack on all of its members, justifying the use of military force. but it is the latest example as to how the conflict in syria is now sp
on this. turkey has a very big, very capable army, but it wants to know if it's got the support from nato. what if assad starts targeting turkey with aircraft? >> that changes everything, nic robertson. thank you so much for joining me. thank you so much for watching. i'm sure wolf will be all over this and of course debate night in denver. "the situation room" begins now. >>> brooke, thanks very much. happening now, we're counting down to tonight's presidential debate. mitt romney's motorcade just pulled up at the debate hall. president obama's expected to arrive in denver any minute as well. we'll be talking with top supporters of each candidate. the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, he'll join us live this hour. also we'll be hearing from both candidates' wives in special cnn interviews. today, by the way, is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. so what's it like spending the night with the romneys? i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> 34 days from the presidential election but much more importantly right now at least right now we've reached what may be the mo
, just to follow that up, charlie, we have a serious situation between turkey-- a nato ally-- and syria developing. they've actually now exchanged fire across their border. the turks are very concerned, also, who gets arms inside syria what happens after. so it's an enormously complex situation the issue romney raised is not illegitimate, it's all in the execution. >> rose: the question that remains for both administrations, is there a policy to look at the rise of the consequences of the arab spring and islamist governments? whether it's libya or syria or tunisia or egypt or other countries sdoshgs either of these candidates lay out a kind of strategic policy that's wise for the united states and a role to play that will be constructive? >> so foreign policy, you know, really, for the most part, has been largely absent from this campaign. i would argue the main reason for that, charlie, is that obama has i think conducted a quite efficient foreign policy. it hasn't been heroic but it's not a heroic age. i think hi he's basically kept the country safe and i don't think this is the time
'm shepard smith. this is the fox report. it's the bottom of the hour. time for the top of the news and nato reports it has a military plan ready should it need to defend turkey from an attack by syria. that statement is its strongest since syrian forces last week began firing shells across the border into turkey. it also ignites new fears that that vicious civil war in syria could soon turn into a regional conflict. a civil war that activists say left more than 30,000 people dead. syria claims the deadly artillery attack last wednesday was an accident, an outcome of that civil war. but it's important to note that many rebels used turkey as a safe haven to launch attacks against the syrian regime. so there is that. now turkey reports it has moved additional military assets to the border region, including more than two dozen f-16 fighter jets. jennifer griffin on the top story at the bottom of the hour. she's live at the pentagon tonight. it looks like it can be contained? >> well, there has been six days of artillery fire across the border between syria and turkey. at first it looked like it
to be open at that point and he had lost interest a little bit at columbia and went to nato to defend that nato's forces and so forth but he did an outstanding job at columbia and he would have gone on to do an outstanding job except he had a higher calling. >> david as i recall rather early in your book you say that you saw ike's reputation editing someone. do you still feel that way? >> well live look, in fact the connection with grants to me is very interesting. i think we look back nostalgically on world war ii in this great unqualified success and so i think the one thing we have not recognized both i believe in voters and the electorate in the 1950's did recognize is that we were really undergoing a post-war reconstruction period and the 1940s and 1950's so the parallel between eisenhower and grant, lincoln and roosevelt is a very compelling one and i think another reason that people have not focused on this parallel is because of ulysses s. grant's reputation and i remember that subject by all people -- was a friend of ours and came to visit us when julie's dad was in the white
discussion in u.s. and nato policy on how to pull out. >> i wanted to introduce to you, sir, just last weekend the number of americans killed in afghanistan hit 2,000. is there a point at which the cost just becomes too great and we pull out. are we already there? >> well, i think the american people have backed off this struggle. two thirds of americans don't support it. they're running 6 or 7 billion a month. this year, we have lost a company-sized unit from nato, killed or wounded by afghanistan security forces. so the trust has eroded between nato and the troops. so i think again, we're headed towards the door. does it revert to civil war when we're out, or can the government resort to civil war? >> well, you bring up nato. and the actions have is stopped them from working with the afghans. the mission was to get in there, train the afghans to lead the country in a position that they could take care of it themselves. so what is the mission now for nato? >> well, there is a good argument, the taliban said that hey, the americans are trying to wait out their position, we're trying to
and get the rhetorical backing from its nato allies. but they have continued shelling. this is not all sophisticated military. they're trying to destroy. and we've had reports from syrian opposition activist that's are syrian army casualties as a result of the turkish strikes. >> and a few analysts are suspecting that syria's attack on turkey may have been orchestrated by either the assad regime or the rebels in an attempt to pull turkey into the syrian conflict. do you have any evidence of that? >> reporter: at this point, no. i mean i understand both points of view and the rational towards making them. at this point it is hard to understand why the president would want to further complicate his life by drawing in his key neighborhood backer of the syrian rebel movement and also has the backing of nato. that is hard to understand. yes, there's a lot of logic as to why the rebels would like to see turkey come more in their side militarily and, of course, turkish artillery is doing their job for them now, destroying some syrian military regime targets there. but those theories require e
for this and we also understand that turkish officials are now reaching out to nato to possibly exercise nato's article in which any member of nato that is attacked could respond and it's really just highlighting the sense situation on the turkish/syria border there after this deadly incident. the attack in aleppo you referenced really two different accounts coming out from inside syria. the syrian government, the official line from them, this was a terrorist attack, three suicide car explosions taking place in aleppo targeting a military installation, an officers club that killed 31 people. opposition activists say this was an attack targeting the command headquarters if you will of the military operating in aleppo that killed at least 40 people. over the past several days, we know that syrian rebels have been launching an offensive to try to capture the entire city of aleppo. we also know from pro government sources that the syrian military has deployed additional troops to that fight by some estimates as many as 30,000. so it is indeed a very difficult and bloody day in the city of aleppo
at the border in recent months. they asked nato allies to meet for a late night session. for 18 hours after the initial shell was fired near a border crossing used by the opposition, they fired guided artillery back across the border at syrian targets. >> from our perspective, the response that turkey made was appropriate. >> strong words, but little action followed. the obama administration attempted solidarity, but made clear it had no intention of intervening, even though the nato charter says an attack on one is an attack on all. >> turkey is a core ally of the united states and this sort of cross border military activity is very destabilizing and must be stopped. >> we are outraged by the syrian government's actions along the turk irk border. we stand with our turkish allies. >> the leadership realized its miscalculation and offered an apology. >> deepest condolences of the government of syria were presented. >> the turks took the issue to the u.n. security council where russia has consistently blocked any kind of action against the syrian regime. >> neither nato nor the u.n. security
in the north and says that is a precursor to invasion. nato top official says the alliance is ready to defend turkey for a tillry and mortar fire from syria continues. correspondent leland vittert has details from jerusalem. >> lined up in fighting position, turkish artillery pointed guns toward the syrian border. five of the last six days, they have returned fire against syrian positions. with tensions between the country increasing turkey trucked in reinforcements and reportedly deployed f-16 jets to the border region. today, the country commanderring general inspected the troop and the nato secretary-general promised help if turkey needs it. >> we have all necessary plans in place to protect and defend turkey. >> once an ally of the syrian president bashar assad, turkey flip support to the rebels. and now provides a safehane for fighters. >> -- safe haven for fighter fighters. the wail of ambulances signals more wounded rebels coming from life-saving treatment in turkey. much of the ammunition and weapons use in the rebel street to street combat comes across the same border, flowing in to
he move those closer to moscow and aim for nato membership? >> they do make sense. whether he can manage to bring it together, time will tell. what he really wants to do is not become an ally of moscow, which mikheil saakashvili not only one time accused him of, but he accused him of being a kremlin stooge. in fact, bidzina ivanishvili wants to restore ties with russia. that does not exist because there was a five-day war in the summer of 2008 and relations between russia and georgia ceased to exist. relations are very important for georgia because russia is the main export market for georgian food and fruits, vegetables and wine. that's why he wants to restore these relations to bring it around again. >> briefly, do you think he can get on with mikheil saakashvili after such a bitter campaign? >> he has to get on and we have good it signals the as we heard today. first talks have taken place this tuesday to cooperate for the future of georgia. >> thank you for that, from moscow. >> to china and our police have made arrests in connection with the country's worst maritime disaster
in defending against attacks like the taliban assault on the u.s. embassy in kabul. nato officials say afghans now participate in 90% of military operations. that's cause for optimism says this analyst. >> if you give them a gun and tell them where the enemy is and you ask them to maybe cover for each other as they move from, you know, rock to rock or building to building they can do that simple stuff because they are fighters. >> reporter: yet afghan forces remain vulnerable. last month they failed to stop a suicide bomber killing 12 foreigners. 11 years after u.s. troops and allies toppled the taliban, afghan forces are still unable to hold their own against a determined enemy. >>> coming up after your local news on cbs "this morning" new poll numbers in the presidential race and a preview of mitt romney's foreign policy speech today at the virginia military institute. plus the latest on the meningitis outbreak. we'll talk to a doctor with the national foundation for infectious diseases and the recent drop in iphone thefts around the country and why that's actually got police worried. that a
behind their ally. they have warned the united states, turkey and the other nato allies they will not allow the kind of humanitarian corridors or no-fly zone or any type of intervention the way things began in libya. the other thing we learned is a number of the fighters inside syria are not necessarily syrians fighting for their freedom. but foreign fighters. hezbollah confirmed one of their leaders and several of their men have been killed inside of syria doing quote their jihadist duty whether they are they were fighting alongside the syrian forces or their own militia. a lot of outside help going to help prop up syrian president bashar al-asaad. bill: a top democratic pollster accusing the media of protecting the president. >> any other president democrat or republican would be crucified while the council was still smoking to go to las vegas for a fundraiser instead of being in the oval office doing his job. bill: is the white house getting special treatment from the white house, from the press? fair and balanced debate on that. martha: top lawmakers are accusing the

. and on this, there will be no flexibility with vladimir putin. i will call on our nato allies to keep the greatest military alliance in history strong by honoring their commitment to each devote 2% of their gdp to security spending. today, only three of the 28 nato nations meet this benchmark. i will make further reforms to foreign assistance, to create incentives for good governance, for free enterprise, and for greater trade in the middle east and beyond. i will organize all efforts in the greater middle east under one official, with responsibility and accountability to prioritize efforts and to produce results. i will rally our friends and our allies to match our generosity with their, and i will make it clear to the recipients of our aid that in return for our material support, they must meet the responsibilities of every decent, modern government, to respect the rights of all the citizens, including women and minorities, to ensure civil society, a free media, political parties, and an independent judiciary, and to abide by international commitments to protect our diplomats and o
the bomber was wearing an afghan police uniform. meanwhile, the head of nato has revealed western forces may withdraw from afghanistan sooner than expected. in an interview with "the guardian" newspaper, anders fogh rasmussen admitted the killings of about 50 troops so far this year by afghan have damaged the relationship between the international forces and afghan police and military. in the meantime, the u.s. has all but written off working out a peace deal with the taliban. we are joined by by afghan haves to talk about this. she has written several books on afghanistan. welcome to democracy now! 2000, the number of u.s. soldiers killed in afghanistan. >> there is a question of when the actual milestone was reached. we are hearing from some media that it was this past weekend. "the new york times" said it was last august. cbs news said it was last june. even when the count gets there is up for grabs, but what is more important, that speaks to the fact that the counting is not the point. the 2000 u.s. soldier is no more or less important than the first for the 17th or the 129th. what is le
to implement their own improvements under pressure and stepping in to help. at the end of 2014, the nato-led combat mission will end. the international community will, however, continue to provide financial and practical support to the ansf and the government of afghanistan, as promised in chicago and tokyo. the insurgent leadership are realizing they cannot achieve their political aims by military means alone. after a decade of exile, the message is clear -- cash in your chips and join the political process or face another decade or more away from their homes. challenges still remain as afghanistan emerges from three decades of conflict. but as districts and provinces moved through transition, we're seeing the government of afghanistan assume more responsibility. it was said just a few weeks ago, this is a war with the purpose and for isaf, forces, a war with an end. we all understand the purpose -- to prevent afghanistan once again from harboring aq and other international terrorists who threaten all of our nations. we look forward to finishing isaf, operations at the end of 2014, conf
in afghanistan as we also work with our nato allies who are there strengthening us and we need to grow our military. we cannot afford to lose against al qaeda and the shia extremists who are still there, still fighting us, but we're getting closer and closer to victory. and it would be a travesty if we quit now in iraq. >> senator? >> gwen, with all due respect, i didn't hear a plan. barack obama offered a clear plan. shift responsibility to iraqis over the next 16 months. draw down our combat troops. ironically the same plan that maliki, the prime minister of iraq and george bush are now negotiating. the only odd man out here, only one left out is john mccain, number one. number two, with regard to barack obama not quote funding the troops, john mccain voted the exact same way. john mccain voted against funding the troops because of an amendment he voted against had a timeline in it to draw down american troops. and john said i'm not going to fund the troops if in fact there's a time line. barack obama and i agree fully and completely on one thing. you've got to have a time line to draw d
between turkey and syria? turkey is a member of nato. >> absolutely. well, that is the biggest international amplication for the united states because, of course, as a charter member of nato. we are oh liked under provisions of the treaty that 27 other members of the alliance have signed to defend turkey if it is attacked by anyone. it is -- it is not professional. it is attack against one. it is attack against all. we have seen consultations also week with regard to the cross-border shelling. earlier in june, there were consultations as well under various treaty to assure the turk that's the alliance would be there to defend them. now on the syrian side, of course, you have the support of the iranian government. there are many reports that iranian revolutionary guard forces are fighting with the syrian armed forces both in the, in the direct action against citizens in syria, but also, perhaps engaged in terrorist activities in turkey, so you can see this potential nor war to spill out and become really a conflict from being a conflict between the west and syria, between iran a
. the nato commander says the alliance is ready to step in to defend turkey from syrian aggression. leland vittert is keeping an eye on this very serious situation live from jerusalem. leland? >> reporter: jon, what's most concerning right now is that those artillery skirmishes between the syrians and the turks are continuing unabated. we are now beginning to get to the second week of those artillery skirmishes which are continuing. the nato chief of staff is saying that he is ready and his forces are ready to defend turkey against outside aggression by syria. and this comes as turkey is now beefing up its artillery, tank military presence and then also moving forward some f-16 fighter jets, forward deploying them to near the syrian border which has become increasingly intense over the past week or so. this can serve not only as a warning to the syrians, but also a little bit of trying to cool down tensions inside of turkey. nato is trying to keep this from escalating into a full war, but from the syrian perspective, this nato warning certainly puts the feeling that if there is a war betwe
they invoked the defense clause of the nato treaty and called for an emergency meeting in brussels. the other thing turkey has been doing over the past month or so is massing forces along their border, and those forces both the tanks and their artillery was used in artillery barrages that lasted about 18 hours against targets there inside syria. as for the syrians, they say this was an accident, they promise it will not happen again, and it appears as though the syrians have enough problems on their hands, they do not want to start a war with turkey going forward, though, you do have a dangerous dynamic set up here. all of a sudden now curbing key is on a war footing. it is ready for respond. if the syrian rebels under a swag operation launched a shell into turkey to try to draw a response that is something that could turn he's artillery barrages in an all-out war that could happen in a matter of a couple of hours in the middle east. right now the next 48 hours are going to be the most critical. we think the syrians have decided to take their licks, they have not yet responded to the t, rsk i
